Now onto the downfalls. First thing is some special effects, they're second rate. Most especially is the part where Robocop puts on his jet pack and flies over a gang of punks with guns shooting at police, the flying sequences look like something out of the first Superman movie back in the late 70's. It's Pretty cheesy for a 90's film. Secondly, the whole film, though mostly entertaining, feels more like a long cartoon. Mostly because of the bloodless action, it all just has a slight cheese feel to it.Read more ›
Though the gritty, brutal violent tone of the first film is gone, I liked this in a much different way than I liked the first film.
To make way for Delta City, people are being forcefully removed from their homes by armed thugs working for OCP(which is now owned by the Japanese). An underground resistance is growing, and soon Robocop finds himself working with the underground when his longtime partner Lewis(Nancy Allen) is killed. Robocop has to go up against the OCP thugs and some cyborg ninjas. And to make matters easier, he has that pesky "Don't act against an OCP officer" directive removed!
There's nothing extremely original brought to the table here. Yeah, Robocop gets a new jetpack enabling him to fly, and a large gun attachment for his hand. Whoopee! This film does feature something I can't stand-The preteen computer genius child who knows how to hack into anything and everything. I know kids are very computer savvy these days, but it just irritates the hell out of me to see children doing stuff that a seasoned veteran hacker would never think of. Is this supposed to be cute? I hated it in Jurassic Park, and I still friggin' hate it in Robocop 3!!!
I like Robert John Burke, always have. Since we're used to Peter Weller's looks and voice, it's kinda hard to simply accept Burke. If he had played Robocop from the beginning, it would certainly be much easier to take. I think he would have done well in the original, though Weller was great.Read more ›
This said, the movie is worth watching for the camera work alone. I am not sure how much of it was due to Fred Dekker himself, and how much to his excellent photographer, Gary B. Kibbe (John Carpenter's associate on his more recent movies), but there is in the handling of the camera a mastery that really make me regret this was Dekker's last movie and he chose instead to concentrate on screenwriting: I am convinced that given time, the man might have grown to the stature of a Brian De Palma, though his spirit is closer to John Carpenter's.Read more ›

Not completely terrible but not a lot to love here. I can see past no violence but the story was a bit long winded and clunky, Robo's story arc kind of seemed like an after thought... Read morePublished 2 months ago by pattk77
